Hi Vincenza,

This was a post under the culture forum by Cathynap:

Not all families have a crest. Most of the sites out there do have made up crests because they have something to sell you. Family crests were made for royalty and nobility. There a few, if any exceptions to this. So if there were no royals or nobiles with you surname, it may not exist. I have found this site interesting: www.cognomiitaliani.or...mi0001.htm
It offers a huge listing of Italian surnames. If there is a coat of arms they know of associated with the name, they post it there by the surname.
